The Islands Energy Program guides island governments and utilities to define and achieve their energy visions. The Program aims to accelerate the transition of island economies from a heavy dependence on fossil fuels to a diverse platform of renewables and energy efficiency while establishing a blueprint for other isolated economies.
The process is guided by a three-tiered approach that focuses on establishing a national energy strategy, de-risking projects, and fostering continuous learning through a renewable energy learning forum.
- National Energy Transition Planning: We convene key energy players and establish a national energy transition plan. The plan outlines how to reach a renewable target and defines the existing energy mix to reach this target.
- Project Development and Implementation: We attract top project developers and mitigate project risk by guiding the process.
- Renewable Energy Community of Practice: With our partner, CARILEC, we provide island energy practitioners with direct access to subject matter experts, and with a mechanism to exchange lessons and learn from each other. The virtual forum connects and empowers users and offers 24/7 access to valuable resources.
Partner islands1: Anguilla, Aruba, Bahamas, Belize, Colombia (San Andres and Providencia), Grenada, Montserrat, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Turks and Caicos, and the Seychelles.
